One thing I don't like is how the door bars were done, sort of overkill on the vertical parts. But, it was how he bought it, so I understand him leaving it alone.

Great resource for me ( and others).

go to the link in post #4 and take a close look at the steering relay rod in the t-arm pic, inner tie rod attachment point relocated on top of the relay rod to reduce or eliminate bump steer

Okay, thanks good info. I'll probably do two locations for the TA pivot, stock and raised, when I'm doing the frame.

I found his videos on YouTube then found his photos. Not many people document that thoroughly.

Here's one of his videos (already posted in the misc racing video thread).

For sake of discussion, it appears the Legendary Motorsport Corvette has this raised pivot mod.

If I could find the episode, could probably see more detail.

Klutt ended up putting some sheetmetal over the pivot point to (try) and hide what he did, I don`t know exactly where but some years ago the kid with the yellow 73/74 posted some spy shots of Klutt`s suspension on here

Thanks! I've been gathering chassis cage info and wanted more on this car.

Looks like he moved it up and forward. I imagine he increased the length of the TA.

One more reference photo. Appears to be raised but not moved forward.
